Did this a few years back. Nice views of the river.

Nice fairly easy hike with some uphill, this hike is mostly shaded but not completely so bring a hat and sunscreen. If you are wanting to go to the Arches keep an eye out for a trial that will ver off to the right, it is not marked and VERY EASY TO MISS!

Remember to respect the environment and leave no trace.

11/10/2018 Trail was nice, however, if you follow the All Trail map the path turns on a foot path that is not maintained. This was not mentioned in the reviews . Very doable easy to moderate trail and we would do it again

Great hike but parking options are limited. Parking lot was full before 9am on Sunday.

This is a phenomenal trail for one that is rated easy: incredible views within the first mile and very little elevation gain. If you have just one hour in Sedona this is the trail for you. Less than 3 minutes from Rte 179. We had come out of the Grand Canyon the day before and our legs were shot - this was the perfect easy trail to still get a taste of Sedona.

The only downside: the perfect solitude and quiet was obliterated first by a pink Jeep and then by a band of ATVs . Would have been a 5 star without that

This is quite fun if you like hopping from one rock to the next, but it’s not the best trail if you are just looking for an easy stroll. I liked it! A bit hard to navigate and there are several paths you can take...but it’s hard to get lost with a GPS.

Pretty but not much of a hike.

LOVED this trail. Lots of scrambling, bouldering, and rock hopping. We paused many times to observe the beautiful rock formations, caves, tree varieties, fall colours and explore each area. My wife had our 7mo daughter on her back and managed to navigate fairly easily. It has challenging sections that follows the rocky creek bed but is very doable. The massive cave with falling water at the end was spectacular- pictures do not do it justice- it’s epic.

Pretty hike. We also did the loop around the mountain from Soldiers Pass over to the Brins Mesa trail to get more scenery. Tip: We went clockwise around and it was less steep of a climb than if we would have went counter clockwise. Parking lot at Soldiers Pass only holds 14 cars and fills up early in the AM. We had to park maybe 1/2 mile down the road away from the houses because you will get towed if you park in the neighborhood by the trail head. Brins Mesa trailhead which connects to Soldiers Pass had a bigger parking lot (we saw it as we hiked by it).
No restroom facilities at Soldiers Pass parking lot. You hike in mostly sun on these 2 trails.

The views are awesome, but the road was horrible. We have a Jeep and didn’t encounter any problems. However, it’s difficult to enjoy the views when you’re having to concentrate on driving.

Amazing red rock views! As Carrie C mentioned, DO NOT do the loop as shown. It has you returning on the Jeep road, your shoes and lungs will be full of red powder from the Jeeps. If you're looking for a loop, return via High on the Hog and Twin Buttes. Really recommend the short side trail to Submarine Rock. Easy to summit and great trail. Also mushroom rock, just before you get to chicken point. Broken Arrow is often crowded with people and Jeeps but well worth it.

This wasn’t really a “hike” to me. Golf carts will take you up from the lower parking area. The cathedral is beautiful. There is a gift shop and beautiful views. There is a gorgeous property on the right - whoever lives there is a very lucky person! It’s breath taking!

Mild rock climbing to the most beautiful payout

This was a great trail -- just the right amount of moderate.

Just on the edge of the city - some houses visible but does not spoil the view.

Easy start -- steep uphill that affords amazing views --- southern exposure tho' - lots of sun.

I went up soldier trail -- then back by Brin and Cieoga (spellings are off in each) -- got another nice little second uphill before returning to soldiers pass parking.

Very nice different mountain, little confusing for direction, but we make it up to the scenic view, moderate cloning, definitely worth it!

Very nice trail. We chose to make the loop from Soldier Pass Trailhead, across the Jordan Trail to the Brin's Trail, up to its intersection with Soldier Pass Trail, then back down to Soldier Pass Trailhead. Nice trails. Even saw a small herd of a dozen deer.

Well marked trail. Be aware of mountain bikers who are generally very considerate. Lots of options to branch off to Submarine rock, Twin Buttes, and others.

Liked this view of Sedona

Parking info: Soldier Pass Rd. vs. Jordan Rd.
Very limited parking on Soldier Pass Rd. It was filled at 8:30 AM so we decided to go to the Jordan Rd. area which is a drive back over by uptown Sedona. What I didnt realize is that if you do that, it adds an additional 2 mile each way. From Jordan Rd. parking There are 2-3 trails that you must take first to get to Soldiers Pass trail. One is a short cut we hadnt noticed in advance. I recommend sticking with arriving early enough at the Soldiers Pass Rd. parking to get a spot. Otherwise, we liked the Brins Mesa hike best from Jordan Rd. A lot a steps tho.

Hiked with our 8 and 13 year olds and they did just fine. We did go off path to find the secret cave and that was quite an adventure. Definitely a good choice for a moderate hike and beautiful views.

Nice relaxing stroll through Verde Valley history with excellent Forest Rangers! Very educational with preserved Sinagua dwellings and rock art. Not to be missed!

We had a base 4 door jeep and made it through the trail with ease. If ur vehicle can get past the first set of rocks then you should be able to maneuver the trail. Not a great off road trail but if ur looking to do a lot of hikes in a day then u can park this at all the various trail heads. We saw a Hyundai Santa Fe on the trail which was loaded down with a family of 5. They seemed to do ok and made it all the way to Devils Bridge and back.

Pretty fun drive, required a little bit of attention in some places. Took it from the i17 down into Sedona and it only started to get bumpy after Vista Point. Used 4hi the whole way since it was pretty muddy after a big rainstorm but I can see it being no problem in 2wd on a normal dry day. Watch out for the Pink Jeep tours they drive like jerks. We got on the trail about 9am and got through most before seeing the tour jeeps. Good 2 hour cruise with constant stopping for pictures

The trail and the scenery are just beautiful. The way back to find is very hard because no signs anymore. It took us 2 miles more to find back. I recommend to take a good map with. All in all we made 6 miles in 3 hrs.

Amazing trail with gorgeous views. We were able to go off the posted trail and find the secret cave. Absolutely worth it. Truly breathtaking views.
